I always liked watching roger fight. But he lost a step around 2007ish, I'd guess he started losing his desire to fight and lost his dedication in the gym. In the last five years that he's been active, only one of those years did he fight more than once.

But he was never that good to begin with. Guida was by far his greatest win, and he was getting pretty dominated in that fight until guida gassed and got choked out in the third. Since then he's gone 1-6, I think he should rededicate or hang up his gloves.

It does seem to me that the guy really has been trying to rededicate himself. You dont go to Thailand and train nonstop if your not serious. All the videos i see of him have something to do with training. I honestly think he has just had a string of bad luck and if he can get some easy fights together he will gain his confidence back and make another good run.

Yeah that's the video. Swick decided to end business dealings with longtime friend and training partner Roger on fight week.

Yeah it certainly makes you wonder why. People dont just do something like that for no reason.

Dang had no idea. Saw an earlier video of them in Thailand shooting the shit and just having a good time. Now this...

Friends and business is a very deadly combination. That's why I don't believe in partnerships only in strategic alliances. Partnerships always dissolve eventually.

You could definitely see he was fluttered. Thing is he was already on the decline; movies, shifts in priorities, personal relationships, etc.

He needs to take time off and get his priorities straightened out. It's too bad really. He's going through what is known as...growing pains.
